When dawn raises a crimson banner
Over the lowland,
The ranks of sawgrass
Lift their swords
With whispered reveille.
Then my heart is a flamingo,
Rising to meet the sun.

When twilight retreats,
Trailing the tattered remnants
Of her colors
Across the bleeding sky,
And the tired sawgrass bends in sleep,
The flamingo cannot fold its jaded wings.
It would beat them against the moon.
